Purpose and design (Evolution)

I just recalled the the Hebrew word Bara, who's is most often translated "created" literally translates to fill, or more specifically "to fatten". In the context of evolution, this could imply a "fattening" or a "filling out" of an existing system or framework. If God fattened the biological system in stages, it would have two implications. First is that hated equilibrium makes sense. Second is that macro-evolution can only occur with outside intervention, but that, if properly guided, it could happen.

What is the purpose of living? How about, 'to reduce needless suffering. It seems to me to be a worthy purpose.
